Pay him big the next two seasons while Ayton is still on his rookie contract. Then when Ayton's extension kicks in, if he's still a serviceable backup, he'll be more likely to stay because he'll be settled in the valley and we will have done the right thing by him already.

Some good parts from the piece...

He learned how to position himself defensively in the post and guard an on-ball screen. He started studying Tim Duncan, a fun foreshadowing of Baynes’ still-to-come career. Baynes eventually became a player who amused teammates by eating 12 burgers at one dinner on a road trip..

...The 26-year-old rookie was a deep reserve on two consecutive NBA Finals teams, but relished the opportunity to observe some of the game’s best players and coaches. He learned how to get the most out of 10 minutes of full-speed practice reps. When coach Gregg Popovich pulled Baynes aside and bluntly stated that he had a much smaller margin for error than the starters, it confirmed Baynes’ “every possession matters” mantra that he still stresses today.

In 2015, Baynes signed with Detroit, where over two seasons he appreciated coach Stan Van Gundy’s slightly “neurotic” focus on competitiveness. In Boston the next two seasons, coach Brad Stevens fostered confidence in Baynes to add the 3-pointer to his game, emphasizing, “If you don’t shoot it, then it’s hurting our team.”

It's funny how the euro guys are usually pussies but the aussie guys are tough. #Stereotypes

Listed as probable for the Mavs game.

The only player who was able to push Baynes around this season was Valanciunas. Probably the strongest player in the NBA. Eastern Europeans are tough as nails.

Here's a neat pic for you. Young Aron and even younger Valanciunas.

One thing the FO really did this offseason that the previous regime failed to do. Bring in vets that really mentor and help the young guys grow and are true leaders on the court and in the locker room like Baynes and Rubio. Booker and Ayton really need that along with Okobo and others.

Aaron "THE BARBARIAN" Baynes shows back up!!! The points are AWESOME, but the 16 boards roadblock picks and two blocks are **** poetry to me!!!
